The global market for Position Sensors is projected to reach US$12.8 billion by 2024, driven by the growing indispensability of sensing, actuation and control in designing smart electronic systems and in enabling intelligent functions such as predictive and adaptive automated decision making capabilities which represents the ultimate design goal of automated systems. These sensors represent ubiquitous measurement systems, the market for which is poised to grow steadily in the coming years, as continuous incremental technology innovations continue to carry the benefits of this technology far and wide across newer applications areas/platforms. Europe represents the largest market worldwide supported by growing integration in smart vehicles, connected electronic devices, and growing plant automation in process industries. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 7.7% through the analysis period. Growth in the region is led by emergence of Asia as the global hub for electronics and semiconductors; growing manufacturing base, investments in IIoT technologies, and adoption of robotics and machine tools and the ensuing strong demand for industrial automation solutions. Other major drivers include growing demand for smart features and functions among the massive base of well penetrated smartphone users and the resulting increase in the use of position sensors, magnetometer and orientation sensors in smartphones; growing trend of automotive electronification and the resulting increase in the average number of position sensors used per car.
